Join with relative pronouns
Relative pronouns are important connecting words. They are different from conjunctions in some ways. Relative pronouns not only connect clauses; they also act as the subject or object of the verb in their clauses. Conjunctions, on the other hand, merely connect two clauses. Conjunctions can also be used to connect words and phrases. Relative pronouns only connect clauses. They do not connect words or phrases.
Combine the following sentences using an appropriate relative pronoun.
